1st June - Cancellation of Season 1 competition and Season 2 arrangements
The NSJTA Match Committee conducted a club survey to determine the next steps for the competition. The results of the survey are attached.

The results show a clear preference from clubs to start a new season for the second half of 2020, rather than try and continue the current season in Term 3. A number of clubs also indicated a preference to leave open the option of completing Season 1 in a shortened format. However, as most clubs stated they would need more than a week to prepare for that option, and there is still no clear indication from the Victorian Government when competitive sport will be able to restart, the Match Committee has reluctantly decided this is no longer a viable option.

We have therefore decided to cancel Season 1 and start planning for Season 2.

Season 2 2020 team entries
We are optimistic that we will be in a position to commence the Season 2 2020 competition on 17 and 18 July 2020, as would usually be the case, and are planning towards that aim. In order to give clubs as much time as possible, we have set the closing date for A Special teams as 8 pm on Friday 19 June 2020 and all other teams as 8 pm on Thursday 25 June 2020. Club Delegates will contact players with details of club entry dates and timelines. We are aiming to grade and prepare a fixture over the following weekend, and quickly release a draft fixture to clubs for feedback. We then plan to release the fixture publicly on the NSJTA website by Monday 6 July 2020.

Age limits
We have decided to temporarily extend the age limit, so that any player who is 18 or under as at 30 June 2020 can play in Season 2, 2020. This means no players will age out, and all players registered in Season 1 can play in Season 2.

Transfer deadlines
Some players may wish to transfer clubs or may need to transfer clubs if they don't have a team for next season. The deadline for transfers is Friday 12 June 2020. No late transfers will be accepted.

The NSTA is looking for more teams at C Grade level for next season starting end August, 2020. This would be suitable for C Grade level NSNTA mixed teams, current or aged out Juniors up to A Reserve level or parents of juniors wishing to have a hit on a Saturday afternoon.
Any questions to Ron on 93064601 or 0417041605.
If you cannot make up a full team then a local club would be able to make a combined team.
